Scandic Ishavshotel is centrally located in Tromsø, also known as the Paris of the North. With its unique location on the quay, the hotel stretches out over the Tromsø strait with magnificent views of the harbour, the Arctic Cathedral and Tromsdalen Valley.
The hotel has undergone distinctive renovation in 2014. The lobby and restaurant were changed completely, and new rooms were added. The hotel rooms are of a high international standard, and due to the hotel’s location at the very end of the quay, nearly all the rooms have magnificent views.
The modern and elegant restaurant Roast offers local meat and fish dishes, prepared in their open kitchen. The cosy Roast Bar invites for a drink before or after dinner.
Name change 2014: Kindly note that the hotel chain Scandic has bought the hotels from the Rica hotel chain. This hotel was named Rica Ishavshotel when it was a part of Rica Hotels.Distances:
Hotel rooms in Scandinavia are generally furnished with twin beds, which can be moved together to form a double bed or placed separately (some hotels have double beds though). Unless otherwise specified all rooms have private bathroom facilities, which are often equipped with a shower instead of a bath. Please note that single rooms are generally smaller than doubles. Purpose-built triple or family rooms are likewise unusual in Scandinavian hotels. Whilst it is possible for 3 persons to share a room, this will normally be formed by a double room with an extra bed. As a result space may be restricted.
Unless otherwise clearly specified a standard room/cabin is included in the tour price.
